April 9, 2023 @ 8:30 am - April 10, 2023 @ 5:00 pm



  • This is an intermediate class. Students must know how to safely operate and manipulate their pistols and carbines. This is NOT a beginner’s class.
  • Students must be at least 21 years old, and due to the Department of State ITAR regulations, tactical training is only available to US Citizens/Legal Residents.

Topics covered:

  • Carbine and Pistol Fit/Form/Function (Getting your gun in the fight and keeping it there.)
  • Zeroing principals based on primary role of your AR (100/200/300m zeros explained)
  • Gear set up and management (What’s important and what’s not?)
  • Building firing positions that mitigate recoil and facilitate rapid/accurate engagement
  • Barrel and Optic Relationship applied to use of cover
  • Static drills that support dynamic engagements
  • Dynamic shooting as an individual and as part of a team
  • Building accurate speed
  • Each class will start with a “skill set baseline” and finish with a “check on learning”

Gear Requirements:

  • Outside the waistband holster.
  • Gun belt or battle belt.

  • At least 3 carbine magazines. The should be 30 round magazines.
  • Magazine pouches so you can carry at least 2 extra pistol and carbine magazines. (If you will be using a plate carrier with rifle magazine pouches, your gun or battle belt will not need rifle magazine pouches.)
